Hi Kevin, ZL1BGK

You are absolutely correct ! I agree with you because if  we as Amateur
Satellite users will stop to collect telemetry for satellites that does not
provide Amateur Radio Services,then the Universities and Commercial
organizations will cease to build thousands of Microsats and Nanosats
only for their own use.

Unfortunately actually we work as pickers up of tennis-ball at no cost
but investing a lot of money for our equipments.
